The Ohia Lehua by eyeofeinstein: The flower of the Big Island grows on trees up to 98' tall. Legend has it that Ohia and Lehua were young lovers who were separated by the volcano goddess Pele when Ohia rejected Pele's advances and was turned into an Ohia tree. Heartbroken, Lehua was turned into a flower and placed into his branches by other gods. To pick a flower is to separate Lehua from Ohia and fills the sky with tears which fall as rain. http://hawaiianflower.org/ #Ohia_Lehua #eyeofeinstein Islands Flowers, Volcanoes Goddesses, Ohia Rejects, Beautiful Flowers, Islands Growing, Ohia Trees, Ohia Lehua, Goddesses Peles, Big Islands

My mother-in-law (a wonderful godly woman) would root her species Hydrangea by digging a shallow hole, laying a Hydragea branch in the hole (late spring/early summer), back-filling the hole with the dirt and placing a brick on top of the hole/branch. In the fall, the branch would have rooted into the soil just in time for a fall harvest to transplant. Miss you Bernice Moore!
